Valuing a partner's partnership interest is an inexact science, which is subject to numerous subjective variables whose weight and consequence can significantly vary the resulting valuation of the partnership interest. This in turn precipitates major business and legal issues between business partners when dealing with their respective partnership interests and how they are to be dealt with in the scope of a partnership breakdown or buy-out.

Partnership valuations can therefore be exceedingly complex and time-consuming, with considerable financial and economic information and documentation that needs to be analyzed and scrutinized. However, there is also the often more significant analysis of the inner working of the business and the real contributions and connections of each of the business partners. For depending upon the actual inputs and the roles that are played by each of the business partners, which in turn is impacted by the particular business being carried out by the partnership, there can be considerable swings in the partnership's valuation, and it is our goal to effectively identify and weigh those factors, so as to properly price the partnership and present an acceptable valuation that can advance the underlying dispute. 

At Neufeld Legal P.C., our role in a valuation dispute is to assist our business client with identifying the basis for the appropriate valuation of their partnership interest and thereafter presenting it in a manner that the opposing party sees the legitimacy underlying that particular valuation. This does not meant that the other side will necessarily accept the partnership valuation, but will grudgingly accept that their is a degree of legitimacy to the valuation and its economic foundation such that we might more effectively negotiate a resolution to the dispute at hand, or argue same in court litigation before the trial judge.

Disputes pertaining to the value of one's partnership interest and how that impacts the overall outcome of the partnership situation, require the knowledge and experience of a legal team committed to advancing the client partner's best interests. At Neufeld Legal P.C., we strive to realize this objective for our partnership clients, as they pursue the resolution of tenuous and highly contentious commercial situations.
